Dont know we did not get that far. The scope of work for what they are NOT paying was incredible. Whats even more disappointing is that people do it for that price. Not trying to offend just saying we in this industry are worth more than the shells on the follow from the peanuts

He might be a 3rd party vendor and the one who gave him the order may be the only one who knows. I can see that.
